Publisher Description

Now a major film starring Academy Award nominees Jim Broadbent (Iris) and Charlotte Rampling (45 Years)

Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 2011

Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour and wit. Maybe Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life.

Now Tony is retired. He's had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He's certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer's letter is about to prove.

Review

A very fine book, skilfully plotted, boldly conceived... Barnes has achieved...something of universal importance -- Justin Cartwright Observer Mesmerising... the concluding scenes grip like a thriller - a whodunit of memory and morality Independent A masterpiece... I would urge you to read - and re-read - The Sense of an Ending Daily Telegraph From the moment that we hear from the woodworm which snuck aboard Noah's ark to the final pages of the novel, Barnes interrogates moral dilemmas and motivations. These tales could easily be read is isolation, but are much better when consumed as a whole. WeAreTheCity An extremely moving, a precise book about the imprecision of memory and how it constructs people, stories and histories. -- Alasitair Bruce Guardian A wonderful story that is all too human and all so real Irish Times A precise, poignant portrait of the costs and benefits of time passing, of friendship, of love. A small masterpiece -- Erica Wagner The Times A very fine book, skilfully plotted, boldly conceived... Barnes has achieved...something of universal importance -- Justin Cartwright Observer Mesmerising... the concluding scenes grip like a thriller - a whodunit of memory and morality Independent A masterpiece...
